Dr. Schwartz is an ultimately considerate, vastly experienced, and knowledgeable counselor who has helped me, over a substantial period of time, deal with many personal and family issues. I would highly recommend him if you would like help in gaining insight and reducing stress in your life.

It was a bad experience I was not able to see him during this crisis and he questioned me why? He said he does things his way and sees patients once per week. I figured he is money greedy and I asked him for exceptions . He can not treat all patients the same. I found him very UNETHICAL since he had no passion towards me and I was paying cash. He wanted to be paid weekly. Very sad most psychs are like these days,.. very sad. He talked about money and appointment for 20 minutes. Waste of my time It is the truth and this old man is so greedy and very unhelpful

Excellent. My previous provider retired. Getting used to him was easy. My other provider talked to me about taking off some weight. He did not mention it. If I describe something with swearing lanuage he never tells me I should tone it down. I refered someone to him and she is happy.

My experience with Dr. Schwartz was nothing less than marvelous. He is not only a professional but he cares about your problems. He is not only running a business; he is running a clinic where the sick of heart can come in and talk about their issues and find answers. I can say for a fact that my marriage was about to end but thanks to Dr. Schwartz I have gather the tools to keep my marriage afloat. You can see why he has become such a successful Doctor.
